I came across this video the other day. It puts for the idea that I Corinthians 13 could be read a different way in light of I John 4:8. It really ministered to me and I thought it might to you too.
John 4:8b …because God is love.
I Corinthians 13 4-8a God is patient, God is kind. God does not envy, God does not boast, God is not proud. God is not rude, God is not self-seeking, God is not easily angered, God keeps no record of wrongs. God does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. God always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
God never fails.
